Hospital Quality Reporting (HQR) Program

Under the Inpatient Prospective Payment System (IPPS), CMS gives hospitals a financial incentive to track and report quality measures. Hospitals that do not participate or fail to meet requirements will see reduced reimbursement.

Hospital Quality Reporting to CMS encompasses the Inpatient Quality Reporting (IQR) Program and the Medicare and Medicaid Promoting Interoperability programs for Eligible Hospitals and Critical Access Hospitals.

What is required?

For CY 2019 reporting (FY 2021 payment determination), hospitals are required to successfully submit data for at least four (4) of the 15 available eCQMs for one self-selected quarter of CY 2019 data (Q1, Q2, Q3, or Q4) during the same reporting period.

Joint Commission

As a certified Oryx vendor, not only can we calculate and compile eCQMs from your EHR data but we can electronically submit for you. CQMsolution supports all eCQMs for the latest edition of ONC Certification -- and that includes all 13 eCQMs submitted to The Joint Commission (JHACO).

What is required?

ORYX® is an initiative that incorporates performance measurement data into the accreditation process. To be in compliance with Joint Commission's 2019 ORYX eCQM Reporting requirements, your hospital must do the following:


  • Hospitals with an ADC > 10 will report on 2 required chart-abstracted measures (reduction from 5 to 2 measures) and a choice of a minimum of 4 of 13 available eCQMs.

    • In addition, hospitals with at least 300 live births are required to report on all the chartabstracted perinatal care measures, including PC-06 which is effective starting with 1/1/2019 discharges.  

    • For CY 2019 eCQM data and forward, all hospitals will be transitioned to and utilize the Direct Data Submission (DDS) Platform.

  • Critical Access Hospitals (CAHs) and Small Hospitals (ADC ≤ 10) will report on a choice of 3 available measures (reduction from 6 to 3 measures).

  • Freestanding Psychiatric Hospitals continue to report on the 4 required Hospital-Based Inpatient Psychiatric (HBIPS) measures.


Suspension of requirements continue for freestanding children’s hospitals, long term acute care hospitals, inpatient rehabilitation facilities.
